Hi @a.e.s.fisher

The scan duration is depending upon the amount of data in machine. If the machine has huge data or multiple internal hard drives then McAfee needs more time to scan everything in the computer

Thank you for the information , it makes sense to me now. I've trusted Mcafee since day one when I installed it and will continue to trust it 

Thanks again
